You say you love to grill out? Here’s a ‘dessert on the grill’ recipe with panache. I love this cake because you can prep it, pack it up, and take it to a beach picnic, barbecue, or the park – any place that has a (clean) grill for the last-minute prep. It’s a summer novelty that can be eaten multiple ways, as a plain chocolate cupcake for purists, a lovely grilled and caramelized chocolate cupcake, or – as its highest and best self – a mouthwatering caramelized cupcake with serious vanilla ice cream melting on top.
